“Justin Arimensis extends compliments from the Aurora Society, the nobility of the planet Sapphire, the Conclave of Lords, and the 12 Schools of Philosophy. Due to the emergency situation which has developed concerning the destruction of the Sapphirian fleet at planet Retradat 12 days & 16 hours ago, the Conclave of Lords has accepted the petition that formalities be kept to a minimum during the conference between the Conclave of Lords and the Concord delegates on this the 13th of August, 2442. Address this human being as Justin Arimensis, son of Charles Tantrensis, Prince of Dalos Bay, Grand Philosopher of the Conclave of Lords, Historian of Ledarn Metaphyics, and alumnus of the College of Justice Ethics.”
Grand Philosopher Justin Arimensis

Life of a Sapphirian is a life of intellect. As the saying goes, scratch a Sapphirian & you uncover a philosopher. They admit that they are more interested in the immutables of existence than others, for example, in the rising price of rhodium. New thoughts & discoveries are traded in the world much as weapons or metals are elsewhere. No one questions knowledge as the noblest pursuit. Sapphirian hold ranks based on academic standing. Most of the population still ranks as Student, with upper echelons gaining titles of Lecturer, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, Professor and Dean.

Philosophical aristocracy, schools of philosophy replace noble houses, educational ranks replace noble titles. The best colleges in the Concord.

The planet is administered by the Aurora Society.
